Georgia May Jagger & Jerry Hall for Sunglass Hut “WOW MOM” Mother’s Day Campaign

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY EVERYONE!!!

Today is the day that we are reminded about how special and amazing our mothers truly are. A day that we treat them with breakfast in bed, heartfelt words, kisses on the cheek and shower them with gifts.

For this Mothers day, fashion photographer Matt Irwin beautifully captures the gorgeous global brand ambassador Georgia May Jagger, playfully having fun on set with her legendary supermodel mum Jerry Hall. Both coming together for the Sunglass Hut “WOW MUM” Mother’s Day campaign, which has just recently launched globally in stores and online.

This campaign shows a more interactive shopping experience through the Sunglass Hut website, allowing you to video call your mum, letting her electronically try on the sunnies of her choice. You’ll never have to doubt if she likes it or not ever again, even though she says she loves it hahaha!

If you have a family like mine, spread apart in different countries or even if you are just minutes away from your mum, its such a great way to get a gift that she will really enjoy.

You can check out the sunglasses featured in the campaign and even give the new shopping experience a go on the Sunglass Hut website HERE!

Thanks again for visiting  and I hope you all have an amazing Mothers Day 🙂

LAN YU

Lan Yu’s bridal gowns were absolutely Stunning!

The gowns were displayed on elevated boxes through a live installation allowing the viewer to walk around the designs. A mix of live models and mannequins were used to display the gorgeous gowns. Each of the 12 gowns represented a star sign, all beautifully designed with intricate fabrication, delicate beading and lace. We had the pleasure to attend the Lan Yu after party where we were able to view the gowns in closer detail.

The designs were simply amazing, I loved every single gown and I especially enjoyed the interactive installation in contrast to the typical runway show.

I had the great pleasure to meet the insanely talented designer Lan Yu and she was just as gorgeous as her gowns; incredibly graceful and elegant.

JAYSON BRUNSDON

‘Rio’ A collection filled with jacquard and silk dresses, with shimmer tones of earthy colours; this is a collection I adore. Exotically wild with golds, coppers, sequences and feathers; designs that translates the fun and the tropical environment of Brazil.

It was truly a breath of difference compared to the designs I had seen throughout fashion week.

MACGRAW

Oh MACGRAW how I adore you!!!

The peter pan collars, the puffed sleeves, the polka dots, the stripes, the print on print, everything about this collection is GORGEOUS!
This collection was one of the few that I could see myself wearing everyday. Current, youthful, fun, relatable and cute, I simply must have it all hahahaha!

IXIAH

I have so much love for this label!!!

The amazing designer behind Ixiah, Krystel Davis never ceases to amaze.
I have followed Ixiah for some time now and WOW! It has grown into an astonishing label with such a unique aesthetic, standing apart from the rest.
Debuting for the first time in Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Ixiah pulled out all the stops with their signature detailing, tribal aesthetic, incredible fabrication teamed with bold and strong silhouettes.

It was incredible!

AJE

Reflecting on Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Aje by far had one of the best displays. A live installation showcasing their designs through live models blissfully relaxing around and under a Sahara-like cabana.
Peekaboo sheer fabrics with lace and detailed floral beading, the designs were beautiful.
We were able to walk around the collection and look at the designs closely whilst champagne and canapés were served. Viewers were able to freely converse about the collection, it was an interesting change of environment compared to the intense atmosphere at a runway show.

SONG FOR THE MUTE

Song for the Mute closed the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week with a daring and edgy Men’s collection. Grey tones with black and white layered aesthetic teamed with ribbed and textured coats. It was also interesting to see Lupe Fiasco close the show and he did it with such attitude and swag that only a Rapper embodies.

Masculine, intense, dark and structured designs; it was a great way to end our first Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

WILL BE.

By William Brunton – Sydney

It was a great way to start the show with a men’s collection, the audience didn’t mind either hahaha!
Blocks and panels of basic black, white and grey used with a simplified print, which resembles stone paving. Masculine suit elements with casual street wear and slippers made an interesting and unexpected combination.
Though it was only men’s wear that was showcased I was pleased to hear that the collection is also available for women :).

ASANOVSKI 
Fatima Asanovski – Sydney 

The use of textural fabrication and the structural silhouettes was highly intriguing. Calculated geometric cuts, transparent pops, minimalistic design created a modern and futuristic aesthetic.

DIYANA KOSSO
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Romantic prints with touches of peek-a-boo sheer, frills and florals, this collection was playfully girly, feminine, whimsical and cute. Especially loving the touch of red lipstick in contrast to the baby blues and whites.

GABRIEL LEE
(Self-Titled) – Sydney

Structured jumpers and jackets with white pearl embellishments, vibrant floral print design styled with matching hats and bags with sheer high socks; this collection was to die for! I loved everything about it, I could not think of one item that I would not love to have in my wardorbe.

OPHELIE
By Sean and Sheila – Singapore

Elegantly edgy and high class, this oriental gold and black collection inspired by the Japanese Yakuza and uniform element inspired structure, left a big impression leaving me speechless. The embroidery, the lace, the pin stripes, the different use of fabrics and the structured lines, every bit of the collection was perfect!

PAUL NATHAPHOL
(Self-Titled) – Singapore

Royal blues, bold reds and greens, deep plunge lines and layered peplums. Edgy and vibrant designs with a strong unified statement of patterns and fabrication. I especially loved the jewelled embellishments on the gowns.

SARA ALJAISM
(Self-titled) – Sydney

Lace and sheer free flowing gowns, elegant, romantic designs with such presence and strong feminine silhouettes. Delicate lace embroidery with metallic pops, gowns that glided down the runway with such ease.

Fashiondiction’s First Birthday

To get you guys updated, you haven’t heard from me in a bit because I have been working on some really special posts for the month of March, since it is…….*drum roll* THE 1ST BIRTHDAY OF FASHIONDICTION!!!! WOOT WOOT!

February is the month that we started the blog but March was when we officially launched Fashiondiction and WOW!!! I can’t believe it has already been a year!
So much has changed, we have progressed far more than we had anticipated and what started as a personal hobby has grown into something completely unexpected.

So for Fashiondiction’s birthday celebration month we will be looking back into our fashion looks, outfits that never made it on the blog, special photoshoots, plus so much more (but I’m not saying anymore so you’ll just have to wait and see).

On the very last day of the month keep an eye out because you won’t want to miss our last post 😉

To start it off here are all the outfit posts from the past year!!!

Wish – ‘Wait For Sunrise’

Here is a sneak peak for the new winter collection for Wish – “Wait for Sunrise”!!
I have always loved their dresses but this recent collection has by far stood out to me the most.

Living on a student budget, the key thing I look for when I purchase items is its diverse aesthetic, how many different ways it can be styled and how many times it can be worn (especially items that are slightly out of my budget).
Although, I do love my girly floral prints, big filly skirts and cute lacy tops, I also love mixing it up with sporty street wear (the hidden tomboy in me 😉 ), without loosing the femininity in my style and this collection is exactly that.

Each piece can be taken and adapted perfectly into so many different personal styles, from casual to chic and it can be worn from day to night.
The dresses keep that sweet feminine touch with the structure, print, cut and lines. However, the separates are cool and edgy, with an urban aesthetic.

It is definitely a collection full of pieces that I can see myself exhausting, both wearing it for work and my college life.

Keep a look out for it HERE!

CASPER & PEARL RELEASE AW14 COLLECTION: SWEET HEART HIGH

Casper and Pearl has always been a label that have admired from a far, simply because when you’re a student, you are limited by the fashion items that you can afford and if I am being completely honest….I’m pretty poor LOL! (This explains why you see me scoring so much stuff on sale). Never the less, this has never stopped me from putting items even as little as under $100 on my wish list, Casper and Pearl being one of those labels.

The label recently released a new collection ‘Sweet Heart High’, one of there biggest ones yet, with everything that I look for in a future purchase: Fun, bright, colorful floral prints with matching separates and cute preppy dresses. The collections is also mixed with some sporty items for those who aren’t 100% into floral prints, giving it the right medium between girly and sporty chic.

Check out the new collection here 🙂

Outfit Post – Summer Swimwear Part 2

Bikini Top – Victoria’s Secret | Bikini Bottom – American Apparel

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY EVERYONE!!!

I love 60s fashion so much that I just couldn’t help but do a part 2 of the 60s swimwear inspired outfit post.
Just like in part 1, I mixed and matched the bikini bottoms from American Apparel and bikini top from Victoria’s Secret.
The bright floral prints and eccentric summer colours have summer fun all over it and this is exactly why it is one of my favourite things to wear to the beach.

As you’ve guessed from my greeting, it’s Australia day here down under!!!
It’s the one day in Australia that we celebrate being truly Aussie; going to the beach, having BBQs with the fam bams, meeting up with loved ones and pretty much spending all day in the sun.

With that said, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today but wherever you are, in Australia or not, I hope your are having an awesome weekend 🙂

Thanks for visiting and I’m looking forward to catching up with you on Tuesday with a new outfit post 😉

Outfit Post – Summer Swimwear Part 1

Bikini Top – Victoria’s Secret | Bikini Bottom – American Apparel

Now it’s no secret that I am in love with 60s fashion. If you haven’t already guessed from seeing the 60s inspired photoshoot I styled last year, I have a lot of clothes that have a 60s resemblance and that doesn’t excuse the swimwear I have hiding in my closet.

For years I had constantly been on the search to finding high-waisted swimwear, it wasn’t particularly popular at the time (people did say it reminded them of their grandmothers). But to me, I saw it as classic, elegant and most importantly it covered my incredibly deep belly button (no really, I’m not just saying that, it is seriously a deep looking belly button hahaha!).
It wasn’t until, my trip to America, that I had finally found bottoms that were perfect! Of course I had found it in American Apparel, one of my favourite clothing brands, which usually has fun, youthful and modern fashion.
I mixed and matched the bottoms with a cute bikini top from Victoria’s Secret, that I had also scored in America. This top was the perfect balance of cute and playful, not to mention it fits like a dream!

I don’t usually wear lipstick or make up to the beach hahahaha! I thought it would just be fun to include it in this post and to pay homage to 60s fashion.

Thanks again for visiting and stay tuned for part 2 😉

Outfit Post – Summer calls for a new change

I know you guys are use to seeing me with my hair straight with a full fringe like in my previous outfit posts but recently I’ve been dying for a change!

I am trying to grow it out at the moment, so to resist cutting it and prolonging the process of growth by killing my hair with bleach; I thought it would be best to wear my hair naturally.

Yup, my hair is naturally curly …It’s kind of weird because it wasn’t always curly; I was born with straight hair but for some reason in my teens my mother’s genes kicked in then BAM! One day I woke up with a head full of curls.
I haven’t given up the full fringe yet; I might go back to it when I get bored wearing my hair naturally.

There is also an upside to wearing my hair curly, it literally takes me 5 minutes to fix my hair since I no longer have to straighten it 🙂
Plus I find the curls suit summer clothes for the hot weather in Sydney (However, the past couple of days it has been more humid then sunny -.-‘) Just a secret between you and me, my forehead would get crazy sweaty under that fringe in hot weather, so I think I choose a good time to give the fringe a break for now hehehe.

Speaking of Summer, I’m so ready to hit the beach, bring out the shorts, skirts, singlets and dresses. Like this awesome skirt that I bought a couple of weeks ago, totally loving it at the moment! I’ve been wearing it with plain tops like white and black basics, perfect for casual days and not to mention teaming it with the occasional pop of colour. It even got featured as a “look of the day” at my college Woot Woot! Check it out on my Instagram under the photos I’ve been tagged in – @fashiondiction

What about you, are you looking at making any changes to your style or hair due to the weather?

IXIAH – Resort 13-14 Collection

INCA

RESORT 13-14 COLLECTION

“INCA captures a Mayan adventure through a textiled journey of abstract lines, fine-spun embroideries and flashing hues. A sleek array of blue, neon and pink silhouettes hang beside provincial crochet dresses  and pullovers.

Fringe work takes flight in metallic thread and woven gems surface throughout.Iridescent beads reel in and out of master-cut shirts while hand-artistry comes to life in a sequence of skirts, dresses and statement vest’s.

Designer, Krystel Davis was stirred by travels through the Andes mountain range,“This idealized landscape of shimmering pools and snow-capped harmony was the foreground to illustrations for Summer 2013.Interpreting the land’s composition in detail at all scales, from intricate thread work to the all-encompassingportrayal of the highlands in bold hardware on jackets.”

The INCA collection is a legacy of polished contrasts, rich applique and a scenic design aesthetic. This pre-Columbian inspired range sets off IXIAH Summer 2013, arriving in selected stores this November.” IXIAH press release

IXIAH Summer 2013-14 Campaign

Some of you may remember my excitement when I had attended Sydney Fashion Weekend earlier this year (you can check it out here).The runway show was where I had laid eyes on IXIAH, the amazing designs of Krystel Davis for the first time.
The unique designs had left such a lasting impression on me that I had been converted to a lover of the label ever since.

Now they have released a new collection, which I am so excited about. Incorporating bright colours (my favourite), vibrant prints, crochet, unique fringe work and metallic pieces.

The new collection Resort 13-14, is perfect for every occasion this summer, with your choice of summer dresses to evening wear. I especially love their selection of gorgeous maxi dresses.

Check out their new look book below, featured on their website – http://ixiah.com/

The materials used in this collection is so amazing, sometimes the quality of fabric used does not translate through photos.
